OTHER CRESCENTS OTHER MOONS

'You carried a local delicacy each time in your bag, some small chosen gift, a stone, an apple, flowers, a photograph, transported hundreds of miles, as if you could bring a bit of your earth to me with each meeting; as if, over the months, you would bring your place to mine, one handful at a time.’  Ann Michaels and John Berger, Railtracks (2011) In his inaugural solo exhibition other crescents other moons, Saad Qureshi takes the role of a story-teller, visually presenting and raising concepts that take us on our own path of discovery.
